HOUSTON—The Houston Rockets re-signed 42-year-old center Dikembe Mutombo for the remainder of the season on Tuesday, adding an emotional leader and a backup to Yao Ming.

Mutombo, who supplants 39-year-old Sam Cassell as the league's oldest active player, appeared in 39 games for Houston last season, logging most of his minutes after Yao broke his left foot in February. Mutombo averaged five rebounds, three points and 1.2 blocks.

He became a free agent after last season and contemplated retirement before deciding to come back for an 18th season.

I think he is more like 45-65 years old. Take your pick.

this one is probably my favorite youtube video ever.

"I just gon show you guys how do I take my showa"
that one's made it into my day to day vocabulary.
"So what I god do, bend my head, bend my knees to take a showah. So by the time I finish taking a showah, I might have a cramp! OOH KNOWS?!?!"
priceless.
